Is this a misnomer? Today is Labour Day and yet, we don't know anyone who works on a statutory holiday … so shouldn't it by called non-Labour Day or just Rest Day? But then, here am I working hard at writing this blog so for me it is definitely a labour day. *Sigh*
If I have to write we might as well move to more fun topics. How about we feature a few of our friends? You know all of us as we posted photos last week, maybe more pictures than you'd want to look at... but hey, we are so adorable, fun and goofy that how could you not want to see photos of us?
So, here we go... a few furry friends met through Grammy's close friends, then many on Facebook and the infinite fun things we all have gotten up to over the years.
First off, there is a pair of beauties ... Murphy and Bella, the fluffy sweethearts of Grammy's oldest living friend.... not that she's the oldest but that they've been friends the longest. These two fluffballs are well-travelled between home and cottage as well as totally pampered. Grammy calls Murphy 'the Murph'. Silly Grammy!
Then there is Sadie, the sweetiepuss of Grammy's friend from church. She lives the good life too. Her only beef is that Grammy trims her claws when she comes to visit. What gives her the right to steal claw-tips? We agree with her. Grammy does the same to us... then tosses them in the garbage. That's not very nice. If she wants our claw-tips then she should cherish them. Save them in a jar and put them on a shelf to admire. She's so weird and disrespectful. I wrote a poem about Sadie and this terrible deed.
As we move into our internet friends, let's mention Nerissa's Life. Our first blogging friend was Nerissa, aka Nissy. He was the famous blogger who encouraged us to join the blogging community. We finally took his advice and wrote our first blog back in October 2014.
As some of you will remember Nissy has passed the baton across to the equally famous ginger, Seville. This fellow has had a city in Spain and an orange named after him. I tell you... that's awesome! You have to check out his blogs. Be prepared for him to take pot shots at his biped family (Peep#1 and Peep#2) especially #1. Wow, he's tough on her... but so funny. Follow him on Facebook too. You won't be sorry.
Then there is our closest group of friends... those with whom we chat daily. We have had and will continue to enjoy joint adventures with four of these families. First of these that Sweetie met was Little Boy Cat, a Chef of extraordinary abilities and creativity. She encouraged him to meet her big sister with whom he fell madly in love. Soon after Gentle Mousie came out of her shell and blossomed. Amazing adventures ensued ... the first of which was an awesome 3rd birthday party for Sweetie followed shortly thereafter by dates, Cheffy and Mousie together. Nervous mom, Whiskers chaperoned at first, protective or her wee gentle girl. The best part of their dates was when Etude & I would sneakily follow them and create havoc. Those times were delicious fun.
In time the crews from Muddy Waters and St. Croix joined the happy throng and there were more mischief and mayhem adventures. Then there's Raina, our Etude's beloved little songbird. All have taken part in various adventures - in the frozen north, the Sahara Dessert, checking out dinosaur bones, caring for sick aunties in Muddy Waters with adventures during off-duty times, and lots of vacations and parties in the islands and around the world. So many adventures were enjoyed that you'd have to read them in our various posts here on our blog or on our Facebook pages.
In the meantime we'll post a smattering of photos from these adventures for you.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, friends. There are so many other friends we've met. Far too many to list but we'll mention a few, no photos, but we love them dearly for their mischief and unique ways to entertain us.
There are our friends, Team Ginger, whose mom drives us to the vet, Aunty J and another team - Sugar and Gordito, Piper's Pusscats, Pixie Pie and the Speed furries, The Koz Clan Adorapurr including Dora and her family, Clan of Nine, Da Fluffarooniez, Edward Scissorpaws and his family, Lord Fluffington, Bunny Love - Panda Bear and Honey Blossom, Sassy Skye and Cheeky Charlie et al, Keebo, the awesome Mini Kitty, Daisy from Ocean's page, Pumpkin who has since passed on, Toby Murphy O'Toole, and so many more.
We apologize for any we've missed that you feel should be included. Remember, we are dealing with a Grammy who at the best of times lacks in brainpower and what little she has has trickled down the drain as the day and blog progressed. Enjoy!
Comments are most welcome.... we especially love the funny, mischievous and cheeky comments.
